GAN doesn’t currently have an online poker platform, but may seriously want to consider developing or acquiring one to capitalize on its market access in MI, NJ, & PA. UK-based GAN Limited said it is working to develop a partnership with the largest tribal casino in Michigan, the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, through which it would launch an Ocean-branded online casino in MI .
Shmuel Mullins, spokesman for GAN subsidiary GAN Affiliation, said Wednesday that it “hopes to start with an affiliation in Michigan with Soaring Eagle in the next couple of months.”
GAN’s involvement indicates the iGaming technology provider is handling the affiliate marketing process for Ocean Casino Michigan.
A new partnership between GAN and Soaring Eagle Gaming — the tribal gaming company of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan, which owns and operates the casino — would likely include iGaming and an online sportsbook because GAN is already licensed to offer both in the Wolverine State.
A spokeswoman for the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) confirmed Wednesday that another subsidiary, GAN NV, received a license to operate in both verticals last January.
GAN already has a partnership with Soaring Eagle. Last April, the supplier agreed to provide its platform to the tribe to support their online casino gaming and sports betting efforts . The platform is live and currently supports the Eagle Casino & Sports skin, which uses the domain playeagle.com . A Future Opportunity for Online Poker?
Although GAN doesn’t currently offer an online poker platform, it may want to look into either developing or acquiring one.
That’s because, assuming it finalizes a new partnership with Soaring Eagle for the Ocean-branded online casino , GAN will have market access in three states with legal online poker — Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
